    I have a MacBook Pro with a 500GB HD with only 76 GB of space left. I moved 200GB of movie files to an external drive then deleted the movie files from my Mac so I could free up the space on the HD.

    For some reason the HD still shows only 76GB of space available even though the entire movie folder was deleted.

    Is there something I need to do to get finder to update the GB available?

    Don't be so hard on yourself! It's not like it starts to smell when you haven't emptied it!! Now, there's an idea for 10.7 !!! :D
